Lindsay Stetner (b. 1976, Canada) is a Canadian composer, performer and educator.
In 1999, she received her Bachelor of Music Composition degree from the University of Regina, having studied with Dr. Thomas Schudel. Her Master of Music Composition degree from the University of Calgary was completed in 2002. While there she studied with Dr. William Jordan, Dr. David Eagle and Allan Gordon Bell. In 2011, her Bachelor of Education After degree was awarded from the University of Regina and in January of 2011, she began working for Regina Public Schools.
Stetner's works have reflected the need for quality and accessible Canadian compositions in not only professional concert halls but also elementary school gyms. She has a wide variety of works in a wide variety of genres including small ensembles, orchestral, choral, band and on-site theatre productions. Over the years, her works have been played by the Regina Symphony Orchestra, Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, and university, high school and junior high school bands as far away as Newfoundland.
The blending of composer and educator has allowed Stetner to ensure that students are aware that composers are not just a name on the top of a piece of music. Recently, she has begun to think more pedagogically about her writing for young bands by bringing Canadian First Nations content into choral and band works.
